About F45 Louisville

The F45 Training franchise in Louisville, Kentucky is excited to announce the grand opening of a third F45 training facility located in Crestwood, Kentucky. The newest location officially opened on Saturday, July 20th, and was commemorated with a grand opening celebration at the training facility located at 5998 Pleasant Colony Court Crestwood, Kentucky 40014. The event kicked off with two back-to-back Hollywood workout classes at 8:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., followed by a ribbon-cutting with the Mayor of Crestwood, Jim Kramer, at 10:45 a.m. The celebration included raffles and free giveaways from Local sponsors: HealthQuest Nutrition, ProRehab Physical Therapy, Perfectly Prepped, and Athleta.

F45 Training is the latest fitness trend to hit the Louisville area and uses a functional Bootcamp-style approach to fitness that helps members burn fat and build lean muscle. In order to bring F45 Training to Louisville, orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Stacie Grossfeld, teamed up with personal trainers Melissa Goodlett and Kim Postema to open all three locations. The first location to open was F45 Middletown which launched in April followed by F45 St. Matthews which celebrated its grand opening on July 13th. After the grand opening celebration at F45 Crestwood this Saturday, people living in Louisville now have three convenient locations available to experience the F45 Training fitness approach.

The History of F45

F45 originated in Australia in 2011 and has since taken the world by storm including the likes of celebrities such as Mark Wahlberg and Nicole Ritchie. The functional approach that combines high-intensity interval training, cardiovascular work, and circuit training is proven to be one of the most effective approaches to shedding body fat and building lean, strong muscle. All three F45 locations in Louisville, Kentucky follow this approach and incorporate over 3,000 exercises into a wide variety of workout routines. The global reach of F45 is staggering due to the setup of the workout routines. Every F45 training location around the world, including the three in Louisville, Kentucky, are all on the same weekly schedule. As each member participates in a Monday workout at F45 Crestwood, the same workout is being led at F45 Middletown, F45 St. Matthews, and every F45 training facility around the world.

The global, team building ideology is one reason that the F45 movement is such a large success. Another reason is the results that members who join F45 training see after attending workout sessions. Not only do the cardio classes guarantee to burn anywhere from 800 – 1,000 calories per session. In addition, the resistance-based classes focused on building muscles also deliver results quickly and efficiently. And now those living in Louisville, Kentucky who are interested in giving F45 training a try are able to do so at any of three different locations.

Each F45 training facility is outfitted with everything a member needs to get a full-body workout in 45 minutes to an hour depending on what class they attend.

Each facility in Louisville, Kentucky includes:

  • A gym facility where members can store their belongings in cubbies during their workouts. Each facility is also equipped with showers, so members can get their F45 workout in and wash off the sweat before they head to their jobs. Additionally, each facility also has a parking lot, so members never have to worry about finding a spot to park their car before coming in for their workout.
  • Workout stations that incorporate a variety of workout equipment including stationary bikes, rowing machines, pull-up bars, steps, boxes, ropes, mats, and sandbags.
  • team of highly trained certified fitness trainers who are available to lead the workout classes, motivate gym members to give each workout their all and help members with correct form and function through each workout session.
  • Various workouts that are sure to use every part of your body during a 45-minute session. From the cardio-focused Foxtrot that takes members back to military bootcamp basics to the resistance-based Pegasus that is guaranteed to work the musculature you’ve already built and help build more, there is a workout for anyone interested in growing their fitness routine.
  • The opportunity to join the 8-Week Challenge where members are challenged with workout routines and given access to meal planning, nutritional advice, and an online community where they can track their progress and monitor others on the same journey.
